Moments

We celebrate and memorialize all sorts of occasions: births, deaths, promotions, graduations, weddings. Momentous events, days that serve to remind us of, and keep us moving towards, the “bigger picture.” But what happens to the smaller moments? The kind words, smiles, laughter and interactions with those who touch our lives in little ways. When do…

18 And Life

I can’t possibly express how thrilled I was when Jamie from Chosen Chaos asked me to write a post for her If I Could Turn Back Time series. I mean have you seen the list of those who’ve been there before me?! So, I am not here today. I’m spending this Friday with friends. Please…

Let’s BEE Friends

I’m not here today. I’m over at Bees With Honey with Bruna for her Let’s BEE Friends link up. Stop by for a list of ten things about me you may, or may not, already know!

First Day of My Life

May is here!!! Greatest. Month. Ever. Today is the first day of my birthday month. My plan is to indulge myself and celebrate until month’s end. Here’s to me!

Say Say Say

I’m having trouble with Blogger’s commenter, do-hicky, majig. The trouble is I hate it. I can’t really reply to specific comments and it just doesn’t seem to work as well, or as seamlessly as some of the other blogs I visit. I tried Disqus but didn’t really care for it. Maybe I just didn’t know…

I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do)

“This week on Hoarders…” Elijah and I attempted to clean and organize the garage yesterday. After all we have a three car garage with no room for the vehicles! This picture of our 2nd living room/dining room is the end result. And the garage doesn’t look much better. Ugh.

The Benefit of the Doubt

This weekend I learned a wonderful lesson about giving people the benefit of the doubt. Now, I wasn’t always so suspicious of people but it seems that age has definitely brought out the crotchety old woman in me. I suppose the ruination of my VERY FIRST CAR by a motorcyclist without insurance who insisted on…

Hang In There

I know I’ve been very neglectful of my blog these past few weeks. I just wanted to stop in to let my faithful readers know that it’s going to get better. The move is almost complete and soon I’ll have more than mere moments to spare during the day. We have all the big stuff…

Friday I’m In Love

New home edition!!!! While I’m definitely NOT in love with the whole “let’s take everything you’ve acquired over the last 30 plus years and move it from one place to another.” I am definitely in love with our new place. I love the way it smells, looks, feels. Even though we aren’t anywhere close to…

All I’m Losing is Me

I’ve been “off” this year, a lot. I’m not sure that I can pinpoint the exact reasons, but I have noticed a building disquiet within. Although, I’m 1/3rd of the way through my 30’s, this doesn’t feel crisis-ish. I don’t want a newer car or younger man. I feel perfectly centered in my family and…
